Beach resort wedding
Officiated by Nicole Lynn Schrimsher at Sundial in Sanibel, Florida on November 16th, 2019.
"I fell in love with this idea when my cousin first asked me to officiate his wedding back in October. So I was behind honored when my best friend asked me to perform in her wedding this November. I believe in true love and those two are a match made in heaven so I said Yes of course. I was overjoyed and nervous hoping that I prepared a great ceremony and didn’t mess up my words. But then I remember, it’s coming from my heart and you can’t go wrong there. This website also helped me get prepared for the ceremony as well. The day was perfect! "
Ladies and Gentlemen, please stand....

Let us join in prayer: Lord, we thank you today for Matt and Michelle love for each other. We thank you for the love and the good news which you have given them. I pray that You would guide their hearts back to You and to each other. I also ask that everyone here would feel the desire to encourage Matt and Michelle To always be strong and to fight for their Love in this marriage and finally that You would be here with us in this ceremony. In Your name we pray, Amen.
Ladies and Gentlemen, Family and Friends: Welcome! Please have a seat.
Family and friends we have been invited here today to share with Matt and Michelle a very important moment in their lives. In the time they have been together, their love and understanding of each other has grown and matured, and now they have decided to live their lives together as husband and wife. Today marks the day that Matt and Michelle finally make their union official. Each and every one of you have been a special part of their lives, and the couple want their friends and family to bear witness to their union, and that you take your beautiful memories of this day home with you. We are gathered here in celebration now to create the good times and memories that will be cherished by Matt and Michelle and all of us here for years to come.
And For both of you, you have had the chance to experience your lives together. With bumps along the way, you have learned what it means to love one another. Through good times and bad times, I have had the honor and privilege to witness how both of you have learned how to coexist as a couple. Getting married today is only one small quick step towards the meaning of true marriage.
Marriage is not just putting on a beautiful dress, or a nice suit. It isn't about having a big party, celebrating with friends and family, or partying to the late hours of the night - although we definitely are going to do just that! All those things are what a wedding is about, but marriage... marriage is about the continued learning of not just living together as a couple of two separate lives, but living your lives as one complete life. It means continually moving forward as a couple, and working towards the success of your family. Let nothing stand in the way of your marriage. The success of the longevity of your marriage rests upon you. To honor your spouse, to be a loving and supporting parent, to support your better half in their ambitions, and to be a nurturing, loving pillar of your family.
* Love is always patient and kind. It is never jealous. Love is never boastful or conceited, it is never rude or selfish, it does not take offense and is not resentful. Love takes no pleasure in other people's faults, but delights in the truth. It is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope and love. It is always ready to endure whatever comes. True love does not come to an end.
And so ...are you both ready to do this?!
Friends and Family, are you all ready to witness this?!
LET'S DO THIS!
You both have chosen to write your vows, and it is with these words you express your binding promises to love, honor, and cherish one another. If you are ready to make these promises to each other I invite you now to face each other and declare your intentions.
I would like to say a prayer at this time. Let us pray.
Bless, O Lord, the giving of these rings that they who wear them may live in your peace, and continue in your favor all the days of their lives. Bless these rings as a symbol of biading LOVE through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
They will now exchange rings at this time as symbol of their love and their commitment to each other.
